Post First GTM, Help and advice needed please!
Hi,
My name is Davey, i have recently acquired a GTM Rossa. As this is one of my first projects, i was wondering if anyone had any good advice as i am quite inexperienced with this type of car, i have some previous experience with other cars but nothing of this sort. The car is in need of some tlc, nothing major but the need doing never the less as i am going to try and get it to look and run like a nice little car! The first job is to find some seals to go around the door and roof as they are leaking badly but as long as there is a bit of good old tarp over the top seems fine! haha below i will list the parts needed, if you have any for sale please contact me, or even if you just have a bit of advice i would be very great-full,
thanks
Davey.

Hi Davey.
3 Things:

1. It seems leaking rainwater is what Rossas do best. If you can cure it, you will be a star. The best seal system I have come across for a surroundless door window was on a Honda Prelude. Maybe you could start there?

2. Further problems/questions you need to be specific.

3. Post pics. We like pics.

Phil

thanks for the advice, will definitely try it! i am currently living in Carmarthenshire, Wales. As i have only recently had the car i have not really had time to find all the problems with it but as it is an older car i would imagine that there will be some minor things. i have however found 3 big holes in the dash were the speakers and sound system was, ( didn't really take much finding! ) was wondering if any one had a half tidy one knocking about in stores or something that i could buy. As for pics i will be posting them soon (latest the weekend) but don't hold out for a show stopping car because, let me assure you it really is not! haha. once again thanks for the advice, really greatfull aswel as needed!

WOW thats my old Rossa, great to see it back on the forum.

Pics can be found here:

mk-2-rossa-rebuild-t712.html

gtm-rossa-mk2-t882.html

Hope you start a project page as i'd love to see how it comes on.

It did have a rubber seal on the hard top when i sold it, although it wasn't 100% watertight it kept the majority out.

It did have a dam good Blaupunkt stereo and Pioneer kevlar speakers in it which sounded great :(

Fire away with any questions you have and i'm sure we'll be able to help you out.

Tom

I have a dash that's surplus to requirements.

It's in good presentable condition (no glovebox lid).

Your's for not a lot - could get it to Exeter kit car show for collection.

Let me have your email and I'll sort out some photos.
